[ISP] Illinois Man Injured After Crashing into House

Entry Description
Akron – Yesterday at approximately 2:20 p.m., officers from the Indiana State Police, the Akron Police Department, and the Fulton County Sheriff’s Department responded to a single vehicle crash at 1325 East State Road 114, which injured an Illinois man.

The preliminary crash investigation by Trooper Mike Meiser revealed that David Bolt, 56, Cabery, IL, was driving a 2014 Peterbilt semi-tractor, pulling an empty tanker trailer, eastbound on State Road 114. For an unknown reason, the semi traveled off the north side of State Road 114 and came to rest after hitting an unoccupied home located approximately 50 feet from the road. The home’s garage, kitchen, and a bathroom where destroyed in the crash. Bolt was trapped in the semi-tractor and had to be extricated by firefighters from the Henry Township and the Rochester Fire Departments.

Bolt was flown from the crash scene by Samaritan Helicopter to a Ft. Wayne hospital. He suffered broken ribs, lacerations, and a head injury. He was wearing a seatbelt, which Trooper Meiser believes prevented Bolt from being more severely injured.

This crash is still under investigation, but at this time neither the use of alcohol nor narcotics is suspected as having contributed to the crash. Troopers from the Indiana State Police Commercial Motor Vehicle Enforcement Division completed an inspection on the semi–tractor, trailer, and required paperwork. There were no violations found.

Bolt was driving for Indian River Transport based in Winter Haven, FL.

Trooper Meiser was assisted at the crash scene by Master Trooper Joe Swisher, conservation officers from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Fulton County EMS, and Fulton County Emergency Management.
